from The World this Weekend· ·

Tonight, the U.N. Security Council agrees -- they will ask Syria to take U.N. observers to mediate the ceasefire. Also tonight -- a story about the distress call from the Titanic: there is evidence it was first heard by a 14 year-old apprentice while the main operators were on a break at their station at Cape Race Newfoundland. And -- two Toronto students have invented a simple, inexpensive application which can "speak" for people who can't communicate orally. Twelve thousand people around the world are using it already.
